This recipe had me at white chocolate bark. As many of you may or may not know, Valentine’s Day is my favorite Hallmark holiday. Ever since I was a little girl, I have loved Valentine’s Day. Going back to my childhood, I think it was the candy conversation hearts and getting a Valentine from that cute boy in 5th grade. As an adult, I love any holiday that promotes champagne, chocolate and flowers. With that being said, I have an entire board on Pinterest dedicated to V-Day and have been having fun in the kitchen with all things shaped like a heart. I found a pin for Valentine’s Day White Chocolate Bark Bites from the blog No. 2 Pencil and just had to recreate this heart shaped treat.
While the recipe is easy, finding a mini silicone heart shaped mold was difficult. I searched everywhere and was only able to find a large heart mold at the local craft store. I made it with the large mold anyway and they turned out great. All you need aside from the mold is a bag of Ghirardelli White Melting Wafers, a bag of Valentine’s Day M&M’s and some festive sprinkles.
To begin, layer the bottom of each cavity in the tray with M&M’s and sprinkles. Be sure to place the mold on a baking sheet so it will be ready for when the chocolate has to set.
Melt the chocolate according to the package directions. I used the microwave and it came out perfect. Be careful not to overheat, as it will ruin the chocolate. When the chocolate is nice and melted, pour it into each cavity. If you are using a mini-mold, fill to the top. For larger molds, only fill about half the way up, as you do not want to have super thick chocolate bark.
When each of the mold cavities are filled with chocolate, place in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes so the chocolate can set. This is where the baking sheet comes in handy, as it keeps the mold from bending. When they are ready, pop them out and serve or wrap up as a gift.
These were so fun and easy that I will be making them again for other holidays. Now I just need to find some smaller silicone molds in fun shapes. 🙂Pin It
